“The portrait of a lady” by Henry James
“The heroine of this powerful novel is the spirited young American Isabel Archer. Blessed by nature and fortune, she journeys to Europe to seek her future from her, but what she finds may prove to be her undoing from her. She is courted by three men: an English aristocrat, an American gentleman, and a sensitive expatriate. Her invalid cousin of her becomes her benefactor and adviser of her. But it is after the ingenuous Isabel falls prey to the schemes of an infinitely more sophisticated older woman that her life takes shape.
